First place baby

So I went to bed last night the fan of a first placed team. My fellow blogger went to bed as a fan of a team for whom if the playoffs started today, his team would be on the outside looking in. It is all starting to get mighty tight at the top.

Another good outing by a Yankee starter, this time Randy Johnson threw eight innings of one-run ball and Matt Lawton’s two-run shot was all the offense that the Yanks would need. Mariano looked less than sharp allowing two base runners in the ninth before saving yet another game for the Pinstripes.

The Sox failed to bust the game open when they had the bases juiced last night in the seventh and I said to Neil that this may come back to haunt them, it did. Timlin came in and got singled all over the shop with a two RBI triple sandwiched in between. Another game the Sox should have won and coupled with the Indians win leaves them a game out of the Wildcard as well as a half game back of the Yanks in the East.

Mike Mussina goes for the Yanks tonight as the Sox have their final off day. A Yankee defeat and the records are identical and if that happens, the final ten days will be like one hell of a heavyweight title fight, but who’ll land the knock out punch?
